Why Have Good When You Can Have Better?

“As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.”  Steve Maraboli

A lot of times we get so caught up in our so called problems, in sweating the small stuff, chasing after one thing or another, chasing after all kinds of things we want but don’t really need, holding on to people that shouldn’t really be in our life anymore and we can’t seem to realize that by letting go of all of these things, we would be able to move towards achieving far greater things.

Why Have Good When You Can Have Better?

What if we could just learn to say “NO” to the good, so we can embrace and say “YES” to the best that is waiting for us out there? Whenever you’re not feeling at peace, joyful and content with your life, that would be the best moment for you to pause and analyze your life situation. By doing so you might discover that you are holding on to things, people, ideas, that are no longer good for you, and you might want to consider letting go of them.

What if we could just learn to say “NO” to the good in our lives so that we can embrace and say “YES” to the best waiting for us out there? Whenever you’re not feeling content and at peace, pause for a second and see if you can analyze your life situation a little bit and see whether you are holding on to something you need to let go of.

Whenever you are resisting what is, whenever you are trying to force events to happen in a certain way, you are in fact working against the flow of life, and instead of going with the flow you are going against it. And this is a battle you’ll never win.

Think about it, is it really worth it? Are you that afraid of the unknown that you are willing to continue to struggle and perhaps live a life that isn’t satisfying to you or to others? Are you so afraid of taking risks, are you so afraid of change, that you are willing to give up on your right to really be happy, on your right to enjoy the many incredible things that you could do, the many incredible things that are waiting for you out there?

“If you cannot risk, you cannot grow. If you cannot grow, you cannot become your best. If you cannot become your best, you cannot be happy. And if happy you cannot be, what else matters?”David Viscott

Why choose to be your own worst enemy? Are you afraid that they might judge you, are you afraid that you will end up all alone? It’s true that it’s not so crowded along the extra mile, but it is also true that those people who are brave enough to go the extra mile are also the people who you and I look up to, right? Those are the people who inspire us, who make us dream big dreams and hope for a better life. Those are the people who know how to only focus on those things that they do want and ignore those things that they don’t need. Those are the people who expect the best from life and as a result, they receive the best from life, for what you focus on expands and the more you focus on the good, the more that good will multiply.

“Are your thoughts worthy of you? If not – NOW is the time to change them. You can begin right where you are right now. Nothing matters but this moment and what you are focusing your attention on.” ~ Rhonda Byrne

So what do you say? Do you think you can let go of whatever is it that you are holding on to and say yes to change? Do you think you have what it takes to embrace the unknown and embark on a new journey of self-discovery? What do you have to lose? Your sorrows, your unhappiness?

    Thank you thank you thank you for posting this. It I was thinking today. Last night I made a choice that totally changes up my path more than it has been in a long time. I am choosing to have more of a life and better things for myself. I’m just going to keep reading this as I go through this decision.

    This is true, but hard to realize sometimes. Other times it’s obvious. Like that old song “If it don’t come easy..”then you might need to step back and reeavaluate. That’s a redirection.
